Hamburg, 30th September 2019

Ready for rollout: the smart meter gateway (SMGw) SiconiaTM SMARTY IQ from Sagemcom Dr. Neuhaus obtains CC-certification from the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI). Thus, number two of the three SMGw manufacturers in Germany required for starting the smart meter rollout is certified.

On September 25, 2019, the SiconiaTM SMARTY IQ gateway was officially certified according to the Common Criteria (CC) by the BSI. At the invitation of the BSI, the official certificate handover took place in Bonn on 30 September. “The smart meter gateway is one of the key technologies in the course of the German “Energiewende”. Only if users in government, business and society can rely on the protection of their data will this digital transformation succeed and its potential be fully exploited. Medium-sized companies that invest in information security strengthen Germany as a business location and contribute to Germany's digital sovereignty with their innovations. The second certified smart meter gateway proves once again that innovative technologies and smart solutions can be developed in such a way that information security is guaranteed and the privacy of consumers is protected," explains BSI President Arne Schönbohm.

With the receipt of the CC certificate, the path to the nationwide smart meter rollout has now been further paved. The G1 gateway from Sagemcom Dr. Neuhaus receives a comprehensive certificate, which means that it can be used for up to eight years as required by law. In addition to the in-house gateway administration (GWA) system "Fröschl SMGWA", Sagemcom cooperates intensively with various relevant GWA software providers in terms of the interoperability of smart metering systems. The milestone "CC certification" underlines the good and focused cooperation of Sagemcom Dr. Neuhaus with its customers, partners and authorities.

With TAF 1, TAF 2, TAF 6 and TAF 7, the SiconiaTM SMARTY IQ supports numerous tariff application cases that enable variable electricity tariffs according to customer requirements. The TAF 7 of the Sagemcom Dr. Neuhaus gateway in the LTE and GPRS product variants is characterized by a particularly economical use of the mobile data volume during metering data transmission as well as the safety-relevant TLS channel structure. In addition, the CLS interface of the SMGW can be used to implement various future-oriented application scenarios within the framework of control, regulation and switching operations (HKS 1, 4, 5).

End consumers enjoy maximum security, data protection and connectivity with the Smart Meter Gateway. As a secure communication unit, the SiconiaTM SMARTY IQ SMGW is the key point of smart meterting systems (iMSys) in Germany. Together with a digital electricity meter, such as the Siconia™ SMARTY BZ meter, the gateway forms the iMSys. While the meter electronically determines the power consumption, the SMGW connected to the meter safely sends metering values to authorized market participants, such as the metering point operator or the end consumer. The aim of an iMSys is to advance the digitization of the energy transition by intelligently linking energy generation and demand in the distribution network.

Hamburg, 31th January 2019

The German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) has commissioned Sagemcom Dr. Neuhaus to create a scenario-based demonstrator for the E-World 2019.

The demonstrator will be presented for the first time to trade visitors and interested guests at the BSI booth (hall 4, booth 4-114). The aim of the demonstrator is to show the functionality and future fields of application of smart metering systems (German: iMSys) as well as the safety features required by the BSI.

"By implementing a functioning fair demonstrator within a short period of time, we can demonstrate the maturity of our comprehensive smart metering solution and the functionalities of our individual hardware and software components, such as the SiconiaTM SMARTY IQ smart meter gateway, the SiconiaTM SMARTY IQ-IO control box, the SiconiaTM SMARTY BZ basic meter and the Sagemcom Fröschl GWA/EMT system," reports Timo Weng, key account manager at Sagemcom Dr. Neuhaus GmbH. "In this way, future energy supply systems, which make up an essential part of the digitalization of the energy system transformation, can be experienced by the audience".

The functionality of the smart meter gateway (smgw) SiconiaTM SMARTY IQ in the various networks is primarily visualized at the BSI booth, for example the local metrological network (LMN), the home area network (HAN) or external access via the so-called WAN interface (TR-03109-11). Real meter data is transmitted from a digital electricity meter SiconiaTM SMARTY BZ and a water meter via the LMN interface to the smgw and is then forwarded to the Sagemcom Fröschl GWA/EMT software via a WAN interface. After successful authentication, the end consumer can check load values and feed-in in real time via the HAN interface.

In addition to the fair demonstrator, Sagemcom Dr. Neuhaus realises a second portable demonstration solution for the BSI in the near future. Additional interactive application cases will be implemented, such as the process of spontaneous readout including the installation of the tariffing profile, or the necessary steps for the registration of a service technician at the gateway.
